Product Description

Synopsis

A true Renaissance man, William Morris mastered every art and craft to which he set his hand, revelling in designs, patterns, colours and textures, and placing his stamp on sumptuous books, rugs, embroidery, wallpaper, stained glass, tapestries, curtains and furniture. The patterns and designs drawn together here show both the nuances and breadth of William Morris's visions, combining intricacy and simplicity; alternatingly dramatic and demure, dark and light, curved and angular, in a virtual dance of superb interwoven shapes.

I thought it might be a useful design resource but found the drawing rather over simplified. I will probably work with one or two of the designs in my work however.

I was disappointed with this book as I thought it would contain colour pictures of the designs but instead it has some rather simple black and white designs which look like they have been traced from the original design. I wish I had read the other reviews before buying it.

Black & White, NOT color 25 Aug 2010
By Melissa A. Sievers - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I can't say that the description of the book is misleading, but more details or a preview would certainly have been helpful. This book is entirely black & white and, in some places, looks like they aren't reproductions, but that someone traced over an original. Lots of close-up details and very few full-size images. I was hoping for images I could frame, but it's not possible with this book. It's much more geared to someone doing embroidery, cross-stitch, or stencils.

b & w outlines 19 Dec 2011
By Kasia W - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is one case where I did not read the reviews before purchasing, but the description is definitely not clear enough - it is indeed black and white only, and some appear to be photocopies multiple times over. The designs are outlines of drawings, meant probably for people doing crafty type activities, not for the serious student of William Morris (who was the intended recipient of this gift).
